Through the year and no matter the weather, workers at the Village Garage are always busy. With the help of their trusty trucks, they clean the streets of sticks and leaves in the spring; patch potholes in preparation for summer traffic; pick up the leaves in the fall; and spray the roads with sand and salt during winter. Young truck enthusiasts will love watching the garage workers operate their terrific trucks and keep the roads in top shape through every season!

The Village Garage is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Praise for The Village Garage

"Children will enjoy watching this amiable crew balancing work and play as the year cycles through the seasons….The appealing pencil, gouache, and acrylic illustrations offer wonderfully childlike depictions of the workers and their machines. Great for kids fascinated by outdoor workers, this picture book offers a welcome change of pace from more basic volumes on trucks." -- Booklist

"Sunny, energetic artwork makes life and work in this village feel joyous and rewarding. Inspired readers might head straight outside to their own yards, ready to weed the garden or rake leaves."       --Krikus Reviews
